Japan Michelin Restaurant Reservations Help!

Can I get advice on the best way to make reservations at Michelin star restaurants in Japan? I tried making one through our hotel concierge in Tokyo and they are not able too (probably because of the guaranty risk), any other way apart from Voyagin? Should I just call the restaurant directly? We would like to dine at Ishikawa.

Which hotel are you staying at? I had zero problems with the Grand Hyatt Roppongi making reservations for us in Tokyo at several Michelin-level restaurants. Is it also possible that you are trying to make them too early? Some restaurants only take reservations xx days in advance.

Ishikawa, FWIW, does have an English speaker to take reservations after 3pm, so it is always worth trying to call, but my understanding is that many of the top places really prefer your hotel to make them for you.
